I had a panicked phone call from a friend (Emma) a few years ago: “Ron, I hope you don’t mind me ringing but I’m afraid to ring Adam (her bloke) because he’ll kill me.”
Me: “Err, ok, go then. What’s happened?”
Emma: “I’ve only gone and put Super Unleaded in the car”
Me: “Shit. That’s not good! Hey, how come you’re driving Adam’s car anyway?”
Emma: “No, I’m in my Ka.”
Me: “Oh, don’t worry, you might just get slightly more miles this time before you have to fill up.”
Adam’s never forgiven her not not calling him first!Posted 8 years ago

A few years back, a colleague crashed her car into 5 or 6 parked cars on the way to work, driving down a gentle but snowy slope towards the office. I thought it was a bit weird because I rode my motorbike down it about 5 minutes before. So how did it happen?
Her:”The car just started sliding all by itself, I didn’t do anything”Posted 8 years ago
Me:”Wow, that must have been scary”
Her:”It was! And no matter how hard I pressed the brake pedal, it just wouldn’t stop sliding!”

On a guided tour of Marble Arch caves in Fermanagh. At the end, they turn out the lights to show you what a total absence of light is like, an American just in front of us whispered to his family “Wow just think how dark it would be if you came at night!”
Incredulous would have described our faces, if you could have seen them.Posted 8 years ago

Quite a few years ago a mate of mines girlfriend asked what the yellow strips across the road (the one’s that make the car rumble) before you approach roundabouts were for. To which my mate said “they’re for blind people so they know they are approaching a roundabout”.. she didn’t question it 🙂Posted 8 years ago
Northwind’s winter story reminds me of mine. Offering advice to a woman in the car park at work whose car’s wheels were spinning on the snowy ground I suggested that she try moving off in second gear. “Where’s second gear?” she asked.
On another occasion, in Greggs I heard a mother tell her 5 year old son that he couldn’t have a doughnut with pink icing because “you’re a lad, you’re no’ a poof”.
I’m no longer working in Craigmillar and for that I’m glad. 🙂Posted 8 years ago

Rachel’s the winner so far for me…
I think one of the best stupid conversations I had was with a mate, talking about how long our drive to Nottingham would take. We were leaving at 1 and expected to be there around 4 – eg a 3hr drive. My mate was convinced it was 4 hours. “1, 2, 3, 4” he kept counting on his fingers. “That’s FOUR hours”. It took most of the trip up to convince him otherwise.
Mind you, we also convinced him that the race were were driving up there for was on an uphill lake…Posted 8 years ago
On a RTW motorcycle trip astonished locals who’d never seen a gigantic 1100cc BMW always asked a load of questions.

My SO while de-seeding a bell pepper said to mePosted 8 years ago
‘If I was stuck on a desert island I would use this as a cup!’
After a small chuckle I pointed out to her the chances of bell peppers growing wild on such an island would be slim.
Now whenever I am de-seeding a pepper I hold it up and look at it and say ‘you know what if I was stuck…’ childish I know.
